Chucks in strength sports?[edit]

I've been involved in power lifting and strongman circles for several years now, and you'll consistently see people wear chuck taylors both in training and in competition. I think that it's a significant subculture that should be noted in the main article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.86.177.233 (talk) 14:37, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Please change the word "weightlifting" to "powerlifting". They are 2 different sports. In weightlifting CTASes are never used by any serious lifter (not stable enough). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.151.130.40 (talk) 17:01, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Conflicting statements[edit]

There seems to be conflicting statements concerning who was the last player to wear Chucks in the NBA. One source lists Tree Richard's and and the other lists Micheal Ray Richardson. Seb0910 (talk) 00:41, 30 December 2016 (UTC) Seb0910 (talk) 00:41, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Terrible article: Marketing copy[edit]

This article is terrible and is almost completely filled will marketing copy. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a advertising medium, nor a fashion magazine. Ashmoo (talk) 20:16, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Pro forma COI declaration[edit]

Be advised that I am the owner of a retail shoe store and have edited this article. We do not currently do business with Nike Incorporated or its Converse division, nor do we sell shoes marketed in competition to Chuck Taylor All Stars. Carrite (talk) 16:45, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Micheal Ray Richardson as last to wear in the NBA[edit]

The link points to an expired auction with no verification that Robinson did, in fact, wear them in the 1982 season. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Philondrejack (talkcontribs) 00:17, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

OK, but the auction does say this was verfied...--62.255.13.162 (talk) 23:19, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Appearance in Film and television[edit]

I added content an citations for the Film and television section that include names of the film stars who wore the shoes in the related film, provied by the cited source. If that's a concern for the article, please feel free to remove the names, but they were included as examples to support the content that the iconic shoes have become part of American pop culture, not a personal fashion choice by Hollywood stars.
